What I like about this meme is that it points out to me that I have done a lot of things (wooo hooooo, confidence building), that there are some things I just don’t care to do, ever, and that there are some things I still want to do!
I find there are things I love and find easy – kaleidescopes, for their movement, hand applique, even using difficult fabrics, but . . . I still need to stretch and grow. This was like a little self-evaluation, and helped me solidify some ideas for the future.
Not that I need any more ideas!

italic for things you want to do, and leave the rest normal.
